Artist's description:

Earth is falling asleep to await Night's kiss.

With the last light behind the distant hills, her hair is aglow with desire and her feet aflame with impending passion; his hair is blending with the distant trees and his lower back and buttock mirror the hill on the horizon.

Rich dark earthy pastels colours predominate but where his breath touches her face and bosom, she is bathed in a ethereal turquoise glow which reflects onto her hand which is being tenderly cupped in his…she holds some little red berries which mirror the colour of the flames of her passion and the flowery glowing warmth of her dream which hovers around her head masking her hair.
